    Yes, Talstar PL granules are safe to use around deer. We would recommend making sure they are not in the treated area until the product has been watered in and dries.

    Q
    How long after treating the garden with Talstar PL Granules can you plant your vegetable plants?
    My raised bed gardens have had ants and I treated them with Talstar granules. How long do I need to wait before planting the garden?
    A

    When using Talstar PL Granules, they would have at least a three month residual in the soil. Some vegetables require a longer re-planting waiting period. We suggest you contact the product manufacturer to see what your specific application would require as far as the waiting period. You can reach FMC at 800-321-1362.

    Q
    Will Talstar PL Granules harm earth worms?
    I need to control fleas, ticks, pine bark beetles, etc.
    A

    Talstar PL Granules are not labeled for earthworms. Earthworms are highly beneficial creatures and you will not find a product on the market that is labeled to eliminate them. Talstar PL Granules are labeled for fleas and ticks and not pine bark beetles. Since pine borers are a type of bark beetle you must apply a product directly to the bark to control the beetles and these products are only available in liquid form, Talstar P. Unfortunately there is no easy solution when it comes to pine beetles. Infected trees should be cut down (before the newly hatched beetles fly out of the trees in the spring/summer) and the wood burned or chipped, while other still healthy trees should be sprayed annually to protect them. Because of the natural boring behavior of the beetle they are protected from topically applied insecticides and systemic insecticides (those injected into the tree or applied as a root drench) have proven ineffective for pine beetle infestations. Healthy trees can be protected before the beetles attack by topically spraying them with a synthetic pyrethroid like Talstar. The tree should be sprayed from the ground to 15 ft up the trunk to prevent future infestations. You should contact your local cooperative extension office to find out the best time to start spraying in your region.

    Q
    Does Talstar PL Granules work on chiggers?
    A

    Talstar PL Granules are not labeled to control chiggers. Talstar Pand Onslaught are top-notch professional products and both are labeled for chiggers. Onslaught is micro-encapsulated and will last a little longer on outdoor surfaces which does give it a bit of advantage over Talstar P. Treatments for chiggers should begin in May and could need to continue through the summer as new chiggers move into the area. Treating the entire lawn is of little benefit because chiggers avoid direct sunlight and normally will not infest areas that are mowed or otherwise well maintained. Focus treatment on the unkempt areas of the lawn and lawn edge. You can also use Onslaught to do a barrier treatment around the outside of your home and in your crawl space to stop pests from moving indoors.

    Q
    How much Talstar PL would I need to apply to a regular size baseball field?
    Do you know how many bags I would need to apply to a regular size baseball field? Just the outfield area
    A
    Without know the square footage of the area you are trying to treat we are unable to tell you how many bags you will need.  We can tell you that each bag of Talstar PL covers 5000-10000 sqft depending on the application rate for the pest you are treating for.

  • Asked by Alex from Manuela, Hi

    Q
    If I put Talstar PL Granules over mulch, will it give me the same result?
    A

    If you apply Talstar PL Granules over mulch it can work for pests that crawl over those areas. For a more effective treatment though, we would recommend moving the mulch and applying the granules in that area, that way pests that like moisture and usually hide under mulch like centipedes, millipedes, silverfish, etc. can come in contact with the residual.

  • Asked by Jim from Ocean, Nj
    05/24/2019
    Q
    Will Talstar PL Granular work on ground bees/wasps?
    A

    Talstar PL Granular Insecticide can offer some benefit for ground bees as a prevention.  

    Ground bees, also known as digger bees, can be very difficult to control no matter what product you use and they most likely will come back to your property year after year unless you do your part to alter your property to make it unfavorable to the bees. Ground bees prefer dry soils with thin grasses so irrigating the area frequently and correcting any issue that causes your grass to be thin will help deter the bees from nesting. In areas where you do not have grass, a layer of mulch will help deter the bees from nesting. Ground bees are solitary bees and are not very aggressive and are known to be a beneficial insect which is why you will not find any products specifically labeled for this type of bee.  For current infestations, you would need to use Delta dust in each individual burrow.

  • Asked by Jessie from South Florida
    05/05/2015
    Q
    What setting to use for a Scotts Speedy Green 3000 to apply Talstar PL?
    A

    The easiest way to determine the correct setting for you needs is outlined below:

    If you need to use 3lbs of product per 1,00 sq ft you would  add 3 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high.

    Are Talstar PL granules toxic to reptiles?
    We have a healthy population of box turtles, lizards, and frogs that inhabit our yard.
    A

    We would recommend keeping any reptiles out of the area while you are doing treatments. Once Talstar PL granules have been watered in and the area dries completely, it is safe for them to return back to the area.

  • Asked by Ian from Green Bay,wi

    Q
    Fire ant mound vs regular ant mound
    On the label for fire ant mound treatment it states: fire ant mound treatment: Apply 1/2 cup of Talstar® PL Granular Insecticide per mound and then drench the mound with 1 to 2 gallons of water. The mound should be drenched with sufficient force to break its apex and allow the insecticide to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 to 80 ̊F) or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Food utensils such as teaspoons and measuring cups should not be used for food purposes after use with insecticide I was wondering if this was the same instructions that should be used for a regular ant mound or if there are different directions regarding regular ants vs fire ants
    A
    We apologize, we are unclear as to what type of question you are asking. Please contact us at your earliest convenience to 866-581-7378. We look forward to speaking with you soon!

  • Asked by Net from Phoenix Az

    Q
    When using Talstar PL Granules for Scorpions, is watering needed?
    I'm considering bifenthrin granules to complement spraying, which has had poor residual performance so far. The granules would be spread widely and hard to water-in. Watering appears to (1) help activate the chemical and (2) drive it into the soil. I don't need the latter, and if my concern is residual performance, might it not be better to let the stuff sit and gradually activate from ambient moisture? If they will... the label says water-in for most bugs, but oddly not for scorpions.
    A

    Yes regardless of what insect you're treating for, Talstar PL needs to be watered-in in order to activate the active ingredient. Granules can typically last 2-3 months whereas liquids like Talstar P? will last about 30 days maybe more on outside surfaces.  For scorpions specifically you would want to go with the Cy-Kick CS? that will sit on top of the surface better than granules and being microencapsulated will last on outside surfaces closer to 60 days.  The Talstar PL granules would be great to use for the insects the scorpions feed on though.
